Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, and those looking for some last minute getaways before the warm weather is completely gone could benefit from businesses that are competing for your dollar.

By going online to the sites of the places you may be thinking about visiting, state Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett says you can often find coupon deals or other deep discounts. She says that often makes the Labor Day weekend a good time to “get out and travel Wisconsin.”

Klett says, if you haven’t already, you really need to get your fill of the Water Capital of the World before the summer actually ends. It might be cliché, she says, but there’s a reason everyone does the Dells. She notes that water parks there recently claimed two of the top 11 spots in a national list.

After this weekend, many tourism destinations will start to wind down for the year. Students with summer tourism jobs are going back to school, and many business owners will get back to a normal routine or start shutting down for the season.
